navigator.clipboard.read()/write() has been enabled (see documentation). A paste context menu will appear for the user to confirm when attempting to read clipboard content that is not originated from a same-origin page.

Very nice. The old execCommand API was annoying.

Hopefully they have a fix for the battery drain on Android. People have been reporting unusually high drain on Reddit, on Bugzilla and on Mozilla support since January and they still haven't managed to fix it.

I've noticed that my charge does not remain as long as it used to. Thought it was the battery aging.

Or am I confirming things that don't exist?
Is this a widespread bug?

Any workarounds known?

Edit:

Checked my battery usage.
FF used 10% of my charge for 8hrs of use(the app usage option).
In full device usage only 1%.

Is it a bug in newer android versions?

Thank you. An Android 13-14 bug?

Or should I be restricting battery usage of FF on my phone too? Is 10% for 8hrs use normal or high?
